SCOOTER is a 2 yr huntaway cross, weighing 26kgs, recently rescued by the Humane Society.

He's a playful boy, enjoys all kinds of toys & fetch games, highly food motivated so easy to distract/train/reward. As a Huntaway breed he is highly intelligent, quick to learn (good & bad), requires both mental & physical stimulation, & hasn't shown any prey drive on small animals so far. He is social with other dogs (mostly), loves company & playing, is house trained - although urine marking is always possible particularly when 1st arriving into a new area, or if another dog has marked.

We feel Scooter has had a rough start and been treated roughly. He is very afraid of people standing, men mostly, but comes right after treats & bribery, so a bit of exposure to persons, plus effort & reassurance from his new owners & when treated well he will be your friend.

Scooter has been vet-checked, vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and is currently registered so we will ask for a minimum DONATION of $200 towards these costs.

If you are interested in adopting him, you will need a securely fenced property to keep him contained which a volunteer from the Society will check prior to him being released to his new home.

You will also need to meet him at our foster home just north of Auckland as we WILL NOT send dogs anywhere and must meet all prospective new owners.

Our aim is to adopt each dog to a compatible owner. The Humane Society reserves the right to decline any dog adoption application at its discretion.

Please email or phone our volunteer for more information.
